"This Cherette (Cheret's model) is out to prove she's more than just another pretty face and does quite an admirable job of it as she sits down at the easel, palette in-hand, to put the finishing touches on the shadow portrait of Adolphe Willette in this advertisement for an exibition of French artist's work. Cheret cleverly includes a feline friend cozying up to the model's derriere in a clever nod to Willette (see posters) who was a frequent contributor to the satirical publication, Chat-Noir (the black cat)" (Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 338)
